Video of the Week

Pitchfork, on the P3 Guld public radio awards show in Stockholm, Sweden:

A man with a twirly mustache in a drum major uniform, singing in falsetto, coos lyrics about listening to Afrika Bambaataa in his convertible, which of course leads to you having sex with him. Spank Rock raps while wearing a priest’s collar. Two remarkably thick backup dancers do the sort of moves that American TV standards departments would frown upon. When Robyn appears, the crowd goes crazy. Then Robyn and Spank Rock slow-dance with each other.

Seriously. It’s amazing.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Even with Lady Gaga out there in the world, American pop music clearly needs to step its freakiness game up.

  1. I feel like I remember Robyn from the 90s. I also feel like you are going to tell me she is amazing and legit and send me six links to prove it.

  2. She is amazing and totally legit (though she took like an 8 year break from music).
